South too strong at home and Adelaide haven't shown much at all so far. Panthers easily.

A win is a win they say...Panthers got over the line in a game that certainly wasnt for anyone looking for sublime skills.The breeze, sorry I should say wind blew straight across the ground at 20knots all day. Davis ,Cross, Liddle and Crabb were best for the Panthers.
This game however will go down in SANFL History for all the wrong reasons... The crowd was officially given as 847........I can tell you , from a reliable source that the actual number was 640. There were more of the crows security present than their supporters, and Im not kidding.

640, shiiiit. That's sad.

Just watched part of the game on the digital pass and you'd be lucky if there was 50 cars largely in a single file around the ground and barely any cars on the hill. Dunno what the grandstand was like or near the bbq (unfortunately I missed the game due to work) but I assume 90% of that crowd was there.

As a lifelong SANFL supporter and forever anti crow footy fan, this lowest crowd number in 100 years or more is exactly why crow reserves should not be in the comp. Clearly fans do not want to watch "trials" presented as league games. The absolute disrespect crows shown by entering their ressie side and top ups in SA's 140 year old comp is complete. Am gutted this crowd result comes this on top of our test cricket side debacle. Damn our SANFL sides (not south and centrals of course) voting this crap in and at least if it was inevitable, a vote against would shown integrity to our comp. We reap what we sow and 6 or 800 fans per "trial" may even be considered good crowd in few years time. Damn the crows and from a nwd supporter, thank you and sorry to South's and centrals for at least trying to stem the flow.

Try sitting in a wind when Port Adelside kicks two goals in the first term then defends for three quarters .
Its not just Adelaide but Port Adelaide as well

Good points.

The other slap in the face is the Crows Facebook and social media sites did not even report on the game at all.

All it pretty well focused on was what Crows played well for a call up to the seniors. Honesty, the Crows could not give a crap about the integrity of the SANFL comp. The sooner gone the better.

More personal body guards for the Crows then their supporters ! That's a disgrace!
